My strawberries did not flambee... so I ended up with a dessert that tasted like a martini gone wrong. I even used Absolute 100! Read More

Well this was really interesting. Made it for company and all liked it but me. The ice cream really is hot! and cold. It's so unique. Each one by themselves isn't good but if you get both in a bite it's good. We used 99 bananas as the vodka to give it that strawberry banana flavor. It flambeed great and definitely was a crowd pleaser. Served little sundaes in martini glasses. Eat immediately or it all melts into a soupy mess. Next time I will cool the strawberries a bit.

Absolutely loved this. The ice cream is pretty spicy by itself but the flavor and sweetness of the strawberries balances it. (Think of salsa...some is hot but not flavorful some has both spice and flavor.) I served this over slices of pound cake. Oh and the recipe easily makes enough for four people...it's way too much for two. Read More

A very very different taste. But a very very good one! The ice cream had a definite kick to it but it wasn't too intense. I also added some raspberries. I'll make it again but definitely make sure everyone eating it enjoys spiciness. Read More

I found it very difficult to get the vodka to light. I recommend using a skillet and removing it from the heat before add the vodka or it's liable to boil off before you get to light it! Read More
